In this discussion note, I examine scattered comments about evil from John Dewey's works.  After a brief consideration of what critics like Reinhold Niebuhr have said about the weaknesses of Dewey's theodicy, I will offer my own critique. In short, I argue that Dewey subverts his own theory of inquiry when he comes to the problem of the origin and genesis of evil.
